Re: possible new service pistol...

The 5.56 NATO cartridge is significantly less powerful than the .30-06, but it has been used for years. The 9mm is smaller than the .45 ACP, but it has been able to use advances in technology to be able to do what is needed in a handgun in the last several years. I still prefer to start with a large...

Another bad thing, those communities hate anyone who moves up and gets away. Like crabs in a bucket. Put one crab in and it will get out. Put two or more in and they pull each other back in and prevent themselves and each other from getting out.

As they become better known, and probably more popular, the modules will become easier to find. I can see the usefulness of the system. I have both 9mm and .40 cal handguns, and this would sort of bridge the slight divide. Kind of like having a Glock 22 in .40 cal with an extra barrel in .357 Sig an...

Re: Chamber and barrel inserts

No experience with them. It would appear that the imprecise sighting is going to limit effective range, and the short barrel they actually have is going to cut way down on accuracy as well as total velocity. Sort of a derringer with a bigger tube around it. For ranges of less than 50 yards it would ...

Re: Shoulder replacement?

Sixgun, a lot of it is genetics and nutrition in their early years.

These two things are not all of it, but they are important parts. Sort ...
